The narrowest ski in the Sheeva collection, the Sheeva 9 features a bit more metal than its big sisters. The titanal layer underfoot extends further into the tips and tails before tapering to carbon. Comparatively, the 9 skis even better on hard snow, while also retaining much of the playfulness and soft snow performance of the other Sheevas. They are wide enough to realistically handle most resort days, while also being light enough for alpine touring. The ultimate gist: the Sheeva 9 tries to make skiing every type of terrain and snow more fun than ever. It passes with flying colors.
